When to Go on Your Spanish Yacht Charter

The best time to visit the Balearic Islands for a yacht charter is between May and October. This is because islands are busiest in July and August, with temperatures ranging from mid 20s to mid 30s degrees. Rain is rare, and the sea is an appealing average of 26 degrees.

Either side of July and August, the islands are quieter (preferred by some) and the temperatures are a little cooler, but still warm. Also, if you wish to charter a yacht during these periods, low season rates may apply, reducing yacht charter fees compared to high season prices.
